*** edit -- answers start on post 40.


just goofing around with my camera before heading out to dinner. I tried to take pictures of distinguishing features. How many can you identify? By the way calguns only allows like 6 pictures to be in a single post. I will follow up with my own posting to keep all of the pics together.

The Easy-Med-Hard rankings are based on my own opinion of them -- whether it's an obscure gun, a C&R, or something not commonly seen...

Ready? GO!!!

OK, we have some new leaders. It's a tight race between redcliff and hyperion.excal. Honorable mention goes to hyperion.excal though for being the most thorough and accurate with his answers.

Looking more closely 20 looks like an SP89 with the funky handgrip on it that extends in front of the muzzle. I think 17 is a Webley-Fosberry but its been a long time since I've seen one.

5.) 1911 G.I.
6.) SIG 226
7.) Beretta 92 or 96 (Could also be an 84 or 85 in .380, same design but smaller overall)
8.) HK Mk23
9.) SIG P-210 (so jealous you have one! sweet!)
10.) Colt 6 shooter
11.) Walther P-38

19.)
20.) HK 94 or HK clone
21.) Luger



That's all I've got. Some look familiar, and others are completely off my radar. I love the HK's and SIG's especially. Cool post.

Number 20 is a little tricky because H&K used generally the same design on all that generation of roller-delayed blowback rifles/submachine guns. Only reason its possible to idenfity is the lack of other contours on the rearmost section of the foregrip (though, other parts are barely noticeable). Even early designs that could also use that charging handle would still have black polymer grips, unless it was a CETME or other foreign designation.

#12, #13, and #17 seem to be the ones tripping people up.

Suppose I'll update my number 15 to Nambu, since that does seem the most likely candidate. :P

The only thing I can see with 17 is the possibility of, like someone mentioned, a Webley revolver, because it looks like an older top-break release. I'm just not familiar enough with revolvers.

http://www.employees.org/~beetle/game/14.JPG http://www.employees.org/~beetle/game/14A.JPG

Hope you guys enjoyed my little game. We have some very knowledgeable members here! I was honestly surprised that some of you picked up on some of the harder ones. I guess I should name a winner. I'll call it a tie between Cyphre and Redcliff. Cyphre has maybe 1/2 point more, but Redcliff was the only one to pick up the Webley. Congrats, Cyphre and Redcliff get the unofficial most knowledgeable member(s) of the calguns handguns subforum award! :)

I don't know how I missed the FN Hi-Power. I knew that action looked really familiar, but couldn't place it. Tough pictures, it definitely took some thinking. The obvious beauties stood out like a sore thumb though, i.e. HK USP, P7, HK Mk23, 1911, and of course your most awesome of all guns in the pics, the SIG P210. Those things are amazing...

Hey I was on the right track with Webley! Not a lot of top-break revolvers out there, but the Webley-Fosburry's have pretty bland name variants. The beretta billenium I think was recognizable because it was the only good look beretta I've ever seen. Some of the best looking carbon fiber grips!

Guess not enough High Power owners to recognize number 12!

Thanks for the fun game :)

Are you sure the locking bar from a 1905 Colt doesnt count for #13 though? :) Heres a picture of a 1905, a pistol I've wanted for a long time since handling one 30 years ago.
